Mehler is hoping the second time is a charm and has announced he will run for one of the four seat available at Rye City Council this fall. Who else is in the game? Let us know.
Here is Mehler's announcement:
I am confirming my interest in running for Rye City Council in November.
I want to be part of the process to “Make Rye Better”. My extensive financial background and understanding of budgeting, employment issues, financial statement and cash flow analysis will be a great addition in helping the council with its essential task of fiscal accountability. I believe that my experience, coupled with my passion to keep Rye’s local government strong, will help me bring new ideas and new solutions to the Rye City Council.
I am fully committed to serving all of the people of Rye.
As a parent, homeowner, resident and someone who works in this great city, I want to assist in the process to make Rye the best place to live, visit, work and raise a family.
I would consider it a privilege and honor to serve on the Rye City Council.
Being on the Rye City Council will be my number one priority. I will make sure that I am well informed on all issues facing Rye, will pay attention to details and will participate in discussions and express my opinions when voting.
On a personal note – My wife, Carin works locally as a school teacher in Rye (fourth grade, Osborn School). As the parents of two young children that both currently attend Rye City Schools (Emily 10 – Milton School & Rachel 8 – Osborn School), a few of the primary reasons we were attracted to the City of Rye were the school system, community and proximity to the park and Long Island Sound. I am in the park every morning and early evening walking my dog, Ben (2 year old pekapoo).
